Material Misstatements

While it has been popular to recite the World Health Organization and Centers for Disease Control and Prevention language that “SARS CoV-2” causes “COVID-19”, this statement is false.  COVID-19 is a set of clinical symptoms involving atypical pneumonia and other influenza-like maladies.  The vast majority of individuals >89% of individuals presenting with symptoms DO NOT TEST POSITIVE for SARS CoV-2 and as many as 95% of persons testing positive for SARS CoV-2 have no symptoms whatsoever.  When cannot be classified as having a “disease” if there is no disease.   As you know, in a test of incarcerated persons in Virginia, over 90% of the positive tests were associated with individuals with NO clinical presentation whatsoever.  Reciting lies does not make them true and leads to onerous and unconstitutional restraint of rights and trade.


As an employer in the Commonwealth of Virginia, I refuse to participate in the acts of Domestic Terrorism that the Department of Labor is contemplating by reciting the propaganda of the CRIMINAL CONSPIRACY that gave rise to these actions.  As you limit public comments to 3,000 words, I am attaching, for your reference, the information that has been submitted to the U.S. Department of Justice.
